Charlotte Aquilonius, editor-at-large at Albert Bonniers, makes her literary debut with a gothic adventure, a contemporary tale reminiscent of a bygone era. Bram Stoker meets Quentin Tarantino in this bewitching novel for all who can’t get enough of Stranger Things, True Blood, and who know an accomplished story when they see one.

Thanks to somewhat unusual circumstances, Milla has moved into a grand apartment on one of the most sought-after addresses in Stockholm’s Södermalm district. After ending a disastrous relationship, she is headed for a medical career in the hematology department of a Stockholm hospital. Her twin sister, Laura, works at a concept restaurant and maintains a carefree outlook on life, yet has far less patience with their eccentric and enigmatic mother.

What happened to one of Milla’s patients, whose cause of death remains unclear? Why do both sisters feel increasingly surveilled as their birthday approaches? Who is Jean de Lanoy, why is he packing up his Paris apartment, and why does he need an extraordinarily special transport to Stockholm?

A simultaneously fantastical and realistic fairy tale for readers with a craving for enchantment.
